. they don't receive combat pay and it's absolutely ridiculous. so recently, the pentagon established that a woman that serves in combat is entitled to receive all of the things that go with it to show our country's appreciation. so it seems to me that if we're going to have a draft and i really believe that if we did have a draft set up that congress would not be so anxious to the democrats and republicans to put our young people in harm's way. >> tell me why you say that because you're introduced this legislation multiple times and it's clearly something you're very committed to. you bet your life because the people in the congress that allow these things to go on, they have no fear that anyone in their community and their families are going to be making any sacrifice at all. less than 1% of americans, most of whom volunteer for economic reasons paid the price in terms of 6600 lives lost, tens of thousands of people wounded. veterans, american veterans coming home, disoriented, unemploy unemployed, some homeless and no one pays a price. i submit to you, we would not be in iraq, afgh

the military, the pentagon, the joint chiefs and so forth make clear what the implications will be to national security. it is a bad picture that is painted. liz: if it is not appropriate to properly, at least to the treasury, could the president say, we're willing to look in 85 billion in cuts just appropriated differently. now? >> there is no amount of flexibility or difference of appropriation and adjustments. install, forgo the kind of economic damage to national security damage that will occur if the sequesters on and will we need to do, we need to come around to doing and what congress ought to do is put forward a balanced approach that avoids all of that. it is not necessary for us to have to feel the economic pain that would be entailed. our economy has been moving along at an upward rate at least , pick up that pace. what will be a shame is tiffany's is why congress to rescind an as gears. that will be a self-inflicted wound that we should avoid. liz: less talk about other things that are -- coming to a groundswell. for example, dodd-frank. that is not entirely done. particularly the

spending as well as in the pentagon and there are a lots of people on both sides of the aisle for different reasons who believe, you know what, that's not such a terrible thing. so the default setting, despite what we heard about the tsa lines and all the rest, may be pretty palletable to some. and it shows you how far the dysfunction in washington has come since they came up with this plan a couple of years ago. >> now, on the dysfunction angle, look, the last time we talked about something sort of similar was fiscal cliff in december, the last congress. now we have new members of congress. my question now is how is the republican party different? >> well, this is the most interesting part of this. i think the white house made a calculation when this whole idea was hatched that the republican party would never go for draconian cuts on military spending. and what occurred in the republican party is that you have a group of younger members who believe in budget cutting above all else, and are willing to take the hits in the pentagon so long as you get hits in domestic spending and so long as
cuts will hit the pentagon and other federal agencies starting march 1st. that is friday. president's new warning came at a shipyard in virginia, that builds submarines for the pentagon. >> because of these automatic cuts, about 90,000 virginians who work for the department of defense would be forced to take unpaid leave from their jobs. so that's money out of their pockets. money out of their paychecks. and then that means there is going to be a ripple effect on thousands of other jobs and businesses and services throughout the commonwealth. because if they don't have money in their pockets, less money in their pockets, that means they're less able to afford to buy goods and services from other businesses. >> house speaker john boehner countered today that the president's not focused on a solution, but wants to travel the country and merely score political points. the president wants to replace those across the board spending cuts with the mix of cuts and higher taxes on wealthy. republicans say they're finished raising taxes. >>> now, to some of the hottest stories in a flash. we
is no one has a 100% grip on this. what's going on in the pentagon is being mirrored down the line as people are figuring out how to take the cut. they'll do the cuts in the most responsible fashion. that's the problem. lori: i understand. treasury had figures on defense spending in ten years. it's risen 54% in the last decade, a real increase. inflation adjusted, and obviously, two wars. that increase actually includes money spent under president obama too. a 2% overall federal budget cut, small potatoes, and considering it increased by that much in that period of time, there's a lot of fat in the military. >> well, i'm not sure if it's fat, but it is -- these are requirements that people saw that were funded by congress. everything was approved. every requirement was justified. every dollar in that defense program multiple layers. the administrators and bureaucrats said we need this. >> the sequesteration in development was designed to be so ridiculous cuts would never happen. are there better cuts for defense? do you have recommendations that make more sense than the punitive cuts tomorro

. the house republicans are putting in a provision that will give agency heads especially at the pentagon the flexibility to decide how cuts are to be administered. the white house is resisting that. this is the empire, the empire striking back, stuart. big bloated government is going to fight for every penny it can get. even though it's only a penny on the dollar they're going to fight fiercely for it they know if it's done once it might be done again. stuart: let me summarize this. we would have these cuts in place until the end of march, and then, because we need to organize our government finances. >> because we haven't had a budget. stuart: we haven't had a budget, those cuts would stay in place and still be cutting the budget, but agency heads would be allowed to say we'll cut the conference budget, we won't cut personnel. >> yes. stuart: we'll cut the school janitor, but not the teacher say that after march 27th. >> that's what the republicans are moving toward. stuart: i can't see how the president could resist that. >> he wants to resist because the cuts would take place, for onc
